While Nintendo 3DS owners got their hands on the first Zelda title to grace the 3DS, patient Wii owners had a little Zelda game to hold them over this year as well: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Link’s long awaited adventure into the realm of motion-controlled goodness was a long one, but well worth it. The franchise saw numerous improvements with Skyward Sword, and in our eyes, has set a new bar for the franchise to hit when the next iteration releases. The refreshing new gameplay styles of Skyward Sword and the lengthy adventure make this a can’t miss title for the generation if you are a Wii owner.
Attack of the Fanboy readers concurred. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was also voted as our Reader’s Choice Wii Game of the Year. Thanks to all who took the time to vote this year, you can find the full list of nominees and voting breakdown, below.
